The erection-emotion and excitement link is strong, and can help us feel less embarrassed about getting an erection.
An erection in a personal training session with me may occur because you are aroused....
There are many reasons for an erection and whilst sometimes it can be due to sexual arousal, an erection can also occur due to becoming aroused in many different ways – ranging from feeling excited and free, in a liberating way, right through to feeling relaxed. The penis is more than just a sexual organ.
There is also another response to add to the list of reasons for an erection – a
reflex response, in which we can gain an erection purely through
tactile stimulation. No thoughts or emotions are required – in fact
the brain plays no part in this kind of erection – it happens
purely as a result of the penis flapping around or touching various
parts of the body in different ways during naked exercise. This is a
perfectly normal reaction and is known as the reflex arc. This article does suggest that all
aspects of sex can be thought of as a series of reflexes, as a result of different inputs. In a naked personal training session there can be so many different inputs that it is not surprising there may be the odd flicker!
There is a localised reflex that literally just happens locally- as a result of the sensation of touch, the nerves that generate this response are not controlled by any sexual thoughts from our brain – it is just a bodily response that does not involve conscious thought. It is similar to the knee reflex.
The likelihood of experiencing this erection-emotion link, through tactile stimulation
in a naked personal training session, is high - due to all the movement
associated with it. The erection process however is very
complex and even though an initial response to tactile stimulation
can result in the beginnings of an erection, that is not under control of
conscious thought, this response can soon be dampened down by
conscious thought, by feelings of anxiety or due to intense exercise.
However if we are happy and relaxed this reflex response may not be dampened, and an erection can result. But, it does not mean there is a wanting for sex: it means that we are not anxious and we are having a good time.
An erection therefore could signify that we are happy and content, whilst exercising our body to keep it healthy. Perhaps gaining an erection during a personal training exercise session could be viewed as an indicator of our mental health, as well as our physical health: to show that we are not anxious, but we are relaxed in our own skin and can enjoy giving our body and mind what it needs to be healthy.
I think this helps to demonstrate
that perhaps our penis should not be thought of purely as a sexual
organ, but also as a display of both our physical and mental health. An erect penis certainly should not be something to be embarrassed about, as
it can mean so much more than just being ready for sex. I think it can be a display of good emotions. As we all know, getting an erection when we are anxious is near impossible, therefore an erection during a personal training session at least shows we are relaxed and excited.. But the excitement may or may not be sexual, it could even be just a reflex.
If you do embark upon any training with me, I will remind you of this theory, so that there is no embarrassment if either of us should get an erection, as the erection-emotion link can be strong and should maybe even be welcomed?
A smile is a display of our feelings, and just because our penis is a sexual organ does not mean that it only concerns itself with sexual emotions - I really believe that it can display a whole variety.
If nothing else a naked personal training session will help you will learn a bit more about your whole body and different responses.
You may not be gay and totally heterosexual, but still you may gain an erection! This = has nothing to do with having a gay personal trainer or being with another man but everything to do with enjoying a different fitness experience. It is all about what you are giving your body - which is just what it needs - total body and mind training.
Some straight men do come for personal training and do get erections. But this can be due to all the reasons written about above, such as an exciting and different fitness experience, that they may really be enjoying.
If you did get an erection the fact that you have a gay personal trainer means absolutely nothing - it is all about you enjoying making your body fitter, and that's it - it can happen to anyone for many different reasons (some of which are non sexual).
If you find the idea of naked personal training exciting then there are the following options - one for clothed - two naked!
